Users don't read books about how to use computers.

Whichever Linux distro you choose you will need to carry out unattended 
installations, probably using PXE. Anything that requires manual or 
expert interventions is not going to be feasible. There was a 
short-lived project to provide simplified Linux systems for crumblies, 
Liam Proven wrote much of their software. It might still be available 
although not from Simplicity http://www.simplicitycomputers.co.uk
